#!/bin/bash

# limit on the size (in KB) of the directory
limit=1048576

BASE=/raid/userhome
adminmail=admin@domain.com

while read NAME EMAIL
do      
# if directory exists, find out it's size
if [ -d $BASE/$NAME ]
then
  size=$(/usr/bin/du -sk $BASE/$NAME | cut -f1)
else
  echo "$BASE/$NAME is invalid !!!" | /usr/bin/mail -s "Invalid directory" $adminmail
  exit
fi

if [ -d $BASE/$NAME ]
then
  size=$(/usr/bin/du -sk $BASE/$NAME | cut -f1)
else
  echo "$BASE/$NAME is invalid !!!" | /usr/bin/mail -s "Invalid directory" $adminmail
  exit
fi

# if directory size is greater than limit, alert the user
if [ $size -gt $limit ]
then
  echo "Data volume in your user home dir $BASE/$NAME with a total size of  ${size} kB exceeds the maximum limit of $limit kB (1 GB) ! Please take action!" | /usr/bin/mailx -s "user home dir exceeds max limit" $EMAIL
fi

done < /usr/local/etc/userlist.txt

So you want to get the size of a single directory including subdirectories and alert root when/if a certain threshold value has been exceeded?

That's basically:

dir="/my/dir"
thr="999"  # <- threshold value in MB
[[ -d $dir && $(du -xms $dir |cut -f1) -gt $thr ]] && df -m $dir | mailx -s "Directory $dir threshold $thr MB exceeded" root

The mail body will contain information about the filesystem where the directory is in (df), but we can place other things there, of course.

By the way "-d /directory" is a test for the existence of a directory "/directory".
See "man test" for more.

hi,
create a file => foldersize.sh
#vi foldersize.sh
#!/bin/bash
du -h --max-depth=1 /dir/subdir/ | sort -n -r > /root/dir.xls
(do it as separate folder)
uuencode /root/dir.xls /root/dir.xls |
mutt -s "User Folder Size List With Attachment" -a /root/dir.xls -- mail-id@domain < /root/body.txt < /root/dir.xls

Note- install mutt and sharutils for attachment with mutt
